    I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's rubbish, and I'll freely admit I've not bothered reading the actual text. The reason? Well, you know how it's possible to spot spam email from the way it's presented. It just kinda has that "look" about it. In the same way I think it's possible to tell a dodgy site from it's "look".

    It's a bit like when your doorbell rings and you answer it to a man in a sharp suit with a huge fake grin, you just KNOW he's gonna try to sell you something you really don't need.

    Why is the self defense method in question fake? Well Ill answer it!
    1. No self defense art is 100% effective.
    2. It easily dismisses every single other art.
    3. Its a sales pitch.

    Now I mention I take Ki Chuan Do a.k.a Attack Proof. Certainly if you got to website..the one in my signature..and you will also get a sales pitch. The difference is I have checked it out. That really doesn't mean much here. You should not take my word for it.

    It is a very good form of self defense although it isn't the ultimate, only self defense in the world. Alot of the people in the class come from
    other martial arts and still do them. This class fills in the gaps between what you learn in regular MA class and what you need for the street. I enjoy the classes. The founder is legitamate, John Perkins, is an ex cop although not in the greatest condition due to health problems of some sort. He is early 60's at this point. I enjoy the classes. I learn alot and can defiantely use this stuff in a fight. Again its best to learn in a class and not simply from a book or dvd. The main exercise it is built around is Tai CHi's Push Hands and Wing Chung's Cia Sou.

    From what I've seen the weapons tactics leave a lot to be desired (unless getting stabbed is your thing).

    I forgot one:
    7) The martial art contrived by the man formerly known as *que dramatic music* "The Dragon"! The Soke says

    BTW: New rule, if someone makes up a new style they have to give a name or we get to name it for them. How about defend-don't for close-combat-video?

    Yes the self defense thing posted in the first post seems to be bs. What I do is effective even though it may seem to most people unfamiliar with it to be bs. And I don't take the words of people who have been alive less than Ive been doing MA.

    Well considering people who've studied MA for 20 - 40 years also said Ki Chuan Do is rubbish I dont think you have a leg to stand on :\

    Great, another Mcdojo following in the tradition of Manabi Masho J. Or just an easy way to sell a couple of bad videos for a good few $$$.

    I do agree with you here but having said that it's a long hard hunt to find a "good" or even "decent" MA instructor these days. McDojo's are just too rife in almost ALL styles these days. Especially those TKD blackbelt factories here in Australia :bang:

    Ki Chuan Do has classes. I take them. I take classes in Kempo, TKD and soon BJJ. People with 20 years of martial art taining or 15 year olds all of whom have not withstanding, Ki Chuan Do is pretty cool. Don't know what else to tell you.
